CONSULT screen terms (Trouble diagnosis content)

DTC detecting condition

Possible cause

P1554 BAT CURRENT SENSOR (Battery current sensor) The output voltage of the battery current sensor is lower than the specified value while the battery voltage is high enough.
  • Harness or connectors (Battery current sensor circuit is open or shorted.)
  • Battery current sensor
  • Camshaft position sensor
  • Camshaft (Intake)
  • Starter motor
  • Starting system circuit
  • Dead (Weak) battery
  • Sensor power supply 1 circuit

DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

1.PERFORM COMPONENT FUNCTION CHECK

Perform component function check. Refer to EC-383, "Component Function Check".

NOTE:

Use component function check to check the overall function of the battery current sensor circuit. During this check, a 1st trip DTC might not be confirmed.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> INSPECTION END

NO >> Proceed to EC-384, "Diagnosis Procedure".

Component Function Check

1.PRECONDITIONING

TESTING CONDITION:

Before performing the following procedure, confirm that battery voltage is more than 12.8 V at idle.

Before performing the following procedure, confirm that all load switches and A/C switch are turned OFF.

>> GO TO 2.

2.PERFORM COMPONENT FUNCTION CHECK

With CONSULT


  1. Start engine and let it idle.
  2. Select “BAT CUR SEN” in “DATA MONITOR” mode of “ENGINE” using CONSULT.
  3. Check “BAT CUR SEN” indication for 10 seconds.

“BAT CUR SEN” : above 2,300 mv at least once

CONSULT Without
CONSULT

  1. Start engine and let it idle.
  2. Check the voltage between ECM harness connectors.

Is the inspection result normal?


Is the inspection result normal? YES >> INSPECTION END

NO >> Proceed to EC-384, "Diagnosis Procedure".

Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK BATTERY CURRENT SENSOR POWER SUPPLY

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect battery current sensor harness connector
  3. Turn ignition switch ON.
  4. Check the voltage between battery current sensor harness connector and ground.

Is the inspection result normal?


Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 3.

NO >> GO TO 2.

2.CHECK SENSOR POWER SUPPLY 2 CIRCUIT

Check sensor power supply 2 circuit. Refer to EC-444, "Diagnosis Procedure".

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Perform the trouble diagnosis for power supply circuit.

NO >> Repair or replace error-detected parts.

3.CHECK BATTERY CURRENT SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect ECM harness connector
  3. Check the continuity between battery current sensor harness connector and ECM harness connector.


  1. Also check harness for short to power.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 4.

NO >> Repair or replace error-detected parts.

4.CHECK BATTERY CURRENT SENSOR INPUT SIGNAL CIRCUIT

  1. Check the continuity between battery current sensor harness connector and ECM harness connector.


  1. Also check harness for short to ground and to power.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 5.

NO >> Repair or replace error-detected parts

5.CHECK BATTERY CURRENT SENSOR

Check the battery current sensor. Refer to EC-385, "Component Inspection (Battery Current Sensor)".

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Check intermittent incident. Refer to GI-39, "Intermittent Incident".

NO >> Replace battery current sensor. Refer to PG-53, "Removal and Installation".

Component Inspection (Battery Current Sensor)

1.CHECK BATTERY CURRENT SENSOR

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Reconnect harness connectors disconnected.
  3. Disconnect battery negative cable.
  4. Install jumper cable between battery negative terminal and body ground.


  1. Turn ignition switch ON.
  2. Check the voltage between ECM harness connector terminals.

Before measuring the terminal voltage, confirm that the battery is fully


Before measuring the terminal voltage, confirm that the battery is fully charged. Refer to PG-4, "How to Handle Battery".

Is the inspection result normal?

YES >> INSPECTION END

NO >> Replace battery current sensor. Refer to PG-53, "Removal and Installation".
